Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

Phase 2a Trial of p53 Drug Candidate Kevetrin in the
Treatment of Platinum-Resistant/Refractory Ovarian
Cancer

Cellceutix Corporation:

A small mid-stage study is being initiated at a Texas cancer
center which is designed to evaluate Kevetrin for safety,
tolerability, as well as assess changes in select biomarkers and
objective tumor response. Cellceutix believes that this clinical
trial, using IV dosing, will directly inform how Kevetrin
modulates the p53 signaling pathwayone of the key questions asked
by pharmaceutical companies under Confidential Disclosure
Agreement (CDA). Furthermore, as the Company has recently
achieved 79 percent bioavailability of Kevetrin by oral
administration in animal testing, Cellceutix anticipates being
able to subsequently switch to oral dosing in future clinical
trials, resulting in more frequent and convenient drug delivery.
Bridging toxicology studies are now underway to enable this
transition to oral dosing of patients.

The trial, we will be using sophisticated molecular mapping
technology to analyze ovarian cancer tissue samples removed from
study participants. Such data, complementing that already
generated by testing discrete ovarian cancer cell-lines, will
anchor Cellceutixs understanding of Kevetrins multimodal
mechanism of action, providing a more complete understanding of
its full potential as a novel cancer treatment.

About Cellceutix Phase 2a Ovarian Cancer Trial
Design

CTIX-KEV-201 is an open-label, Phase 2a study evaluating the
safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of Kevetrin as well as
changes in select biomarkers and objective tumor response when
administered to patients with platinum-resistant/refractory
ovarian cancer. The clinical trial comprises two different
short-term treatment regimens and will enroll an estimated 10
patients. Primary outcome measures include the incidence of
Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs) and changes in
pre-specified biomarkers (via tumor biopsy, examination of
ascites fluid and peripheral blood), pre-treatment and
post-treatment, at 3 weeks. Secondary outcome measures include
objective tumor response, per Response Evaluation Criteria in
Solid Tumors (RECIST) (version 1.1) and plasma concentrations of
Kevetrin.
